Bomb suspect influenced by mysterious radical

WASHINGTON (AP) - In the years before the Boston Marathon bombings, Tamerlan Tsarnaev fell under the influence of a new friend, a Muslim convert who steered the religiously apathetic young man toward a strict strain of Islam, family members said. Under the tutelage of a friend known to the Tsarnaev family only as Misha, Tamerlan gave up boxing and stopped studying music, his family said. He began opposing the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He turned to websites and literature claiming that the CIA was behind the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and Jews controlled the world.

I still do not understand.

The FBI was tipped that the older Tsarnaev was an Islamic radical in 2011, and they investigated and questioned him. I don’t care what evidence they found or did not find; there was suspicion. Why was he NOT simply thrown out of the United States and deported back to Chechnya in 2011????????

Perhaps there was insufficient evidence to charge him with a crime and imprison him. So what? I’m not suggesting he should have been charged with a crime or imprisoned in 2011. I’m suggesting he should have been made to leave the USA.

He was not a citizen; he was a “guest”. He was not entitled to stay here. He could have had his papers revoked and been thrown out at any time. No evidence or due process is required to make a guest leave.

Why was this not done? What politically correct attitudes allowed him to stay so that he could murder Americans??

Suggest removal:
